As one of the most well-respected business schools in the region, we prepare tomorrow's global business leaders.
At the School of Business Administration (SBA), we strive to provide high-quality, American-style business education. Our programs provide local and global perspectives, promote critical thinking and develop effective communication skills. Today's effective business professional must have competence in many disciplines, an understanding of a variety of relationships and the ability to analyze evolving business, economic and governmental trends.
